Pinks All Out

By Jefro

Ihad the chance to go to the filming of an episode of pinks All Out last Saturday and I have to say it was some of the best racing I have ever witnessed. I don’t know how they stack these cars up co close but there couldn't have been more then a car length between cars at the finish line. I had a great time and recommend going for anyone who has the chance.

Electrical Problems

By Jefro

Well I decided to tell this story just in case it might help someone out there. From the time I bought my C5 it has had little electrical glitches, kind of like a slot machine you just didn’t know what would pop up when you turned the key. When I bought the car it had a bad battery ( by the way it is my experience that all used Corvettes come with bad batteries) after changing the battery things got a little better. After the new battery I still had some problems though so like so many GMs before I decided to change the ignition switch my lock cylinder was also toast. (the key would vibrate out as you drove and set off the security light) I found this great place for parts GMPartsDirect.com best prices I could find. Long story short the swap out went very smooth the lock cylinder was the hardest part you have to transfer all the lock tumblers and springs to the new one exactly as they came out of the old one. Now the car runs great and all of my electrical glitches have seemed to vanish. So if you are having random electrical problems you might want to try changing your ignition switch.
